Neil, thank you for your interest...
My SQL errorlog says nothing ...
(I think, my SQL server doesn't generate any error, because it "thinks",
that it is starting yet)
When I stop the service (it's posible, even if it has not already started)
in SQL errorlog I can see : "Service control: stop before startup"
Maybe I can help you with analyzing ... when I try to uninstall, and then
install SQL server again, it freezed when it says ... Starting service ...
And when I try to use Service Pack II, it says ... Trying to login (or
something like that)...
and it freezes too.
The server is on my computer, and I try to connect to it several hours.
Peter - look in the SQL errorlog file and see what it says SQL is doing
